It is generally limited to the traumatized area without extending beyond and resolves spontaneously. Hypertrophic scar is characterized by an overproduction of collagen tissue which connects all the fibers of the skin to re-weave the assembly. The evolution of hypertrophic scars lasts about a year. During the first 20 days, the scar is beautiful, linear, more or less fine. After 2 to 3 months, the scar becomes hard, red, slightly hypertrophic and may itch. Between 6 months and 1 year, is the regression step. Scar tissue forms in right quantity and the wound.

Keloids primarily affect young people, people of dark skin and body parts such as the sternum area, shoulders, earlobes and the lower part of the face. To treat a keloid scar, one first destroys the blood vessels to prevent vascularization of the protuberance that develops at the site of the scar. Then, once that the blood can no longer is flattened to reduce scar and the skin is regenerated. Keloid scar gives way to a soft scar, white, insensitive, linear, stable and definitive.
